We had the bye in Round 1 but faced St Peter’s Catholic College in Round 2. After winning the toss and selecting to bowl, it is fair to say that we dominated from ball one. Fynn Newell and Matt Toohey opened the bowling taking quick wickets and bowling fast, while Lachlan Carlyle bowled a tight spell with his leg spin. St Peter’s batted for 26 overs, only scoring 16 runs, as the boys gave them nothing in the field as they took all their chances.
Alex Cutting and Cameron Wehrle chased down the runs in 11 balls. Off to Round 3!
For Round 3, we played MacKillop Catholic College. Again, we won the toss and chose to bowl. A great opening spell from Fynn Newell (5/8) and Angus Jack (0/10) put us on the front foot. Rayden Gomes, Alex Cutting, Lachlan Carlyle, and Liam Roche shared the remaining wickets as Ken Foneska had one of the best runouts you will see. We bowled MacKillop out for 87 off 33 overs, again a strong performance in the field.
We lost a couple of quick wickets but passed their total with ease. Liam Roche (22), Rayden Gomes (32*) and Alex Cutting (24*) batted well to consolidate the innings after a tough start. Off to Round 4!
Round 4 is yet to be played, but more information to come. We have a strong side so it will be interesting to see how far we make it in this competition.
The squad is as follows:
Rayden Gomez, Alex Cutting, Angus Jack, Cameron Wehrle, John James, Liam Roache, Koby Salter, Ken Fonseka, Levi Bailey, Matt Toohey, Fynn Newell, Lachlan Carlyle, Tom Fenton
